Army of The Damned
This campaign will be focused on releasing 8 full hard plastic sets for the newest Death Fields' faction: The Damned! (their backstory can be found at the bottom of the page).
These 8 sets will let you build a full army of The Damned and includes plastic sets for:
- Heavy Support Teams
- Tank (yes our first hard plastic vehicle!)
First painted examples of the Infantry set by Cult of Paint.
MiniWargaming will be previewing all the sets and setting the stage over the next few weeks as we prepare to launch. We'll have more painted models, videos, and lots to see and talk about as the campaign progresses!
If successful, this campaign will allow us to do something we've never done before: release an entire ARMY in one shot! And once we've fulfilled all the backer pledges all 8 sets will be available as part of our regular catalog and at retailers worldwide.
Retailers: we will have full retail level pledges in the campaign as well.
Above are examples from the Infantry, Brutes, Heavy Support Teams, and the Outriders. We'll be showing more of each of these along with the four other sets as we get closer to launch.
Stay tuned for more previews, the launch of the Game Found page, and more from MiniWargaming in the near future!
ABOUT THE DAMNED
A quite new addition to the Death Fields circuit, the Damned were abducted just a few decades ago from their broken home.
These unfortunate humans were part of a powerful and wide-ranging end-of-days cult in human space that believed only strict separation from the rest of humanity would save them from the coming galactic apocalypse. To that end in the late 2300s they secretly funneled monies to construct a space habitat in a remote system with no habitable worlds. Here they hoped to live unnoticed by the rest of humanity. Unfortunately for them, they did. Within twenty years, minor and then major systems began to fail and few of the new generation had taken their training seriously. Rival factions claiming to know the "true path" silently formed. As their habitat began to fail around them, terrorist acts and then open conflict began to erupt.
The factions took over the remaining habitable sections and continued their war as the station fell apart around them. Chemicals, poor air quality, exposure to radiation, and other pollutants caused a high number of birth defects. Over the next twenty years no inhabitant was without mutation or severe chronic illness. Yet the war dragged on.
In the midst of this, a highly trained squad of soldiers of one of the two factions - The Damned - was abducted from the station. They've now had decades on the Death Fields circuit where they are a deadly force to be reckoned with. Although easily fixed by the advanced technology available to their owner, many wear their mutations and scars as a mark of pride. They have also leveraged alien technology to create “Brutes”: massive, mutated humans with incredible strength and resilience to pain who act as the line breakers on the battlefield soaking up punishment to provide openings for the rest of the team to control the field.
ABOUT THE DEATH FIELDS
For thousands of years, advanced alien civilizations have visited the Earth for one purpose: to steal our bravest warriors. For centuries, the cream of Earth's soldiers have been taken against their will to fight, die, and be reborn in arenas throughout the galaxy.
The Game Guilds provide some of the most watched sport in the known universe with matches broadcast in thousands of systems. A perennial favorite of sports fans everywhere are the humans - a primitive race from the far edge of the galaxy.
Over the millennia, the finest warriors of that backwater planet have been brought to the arenas to fight each other and a host of other sentient species and deadly creatures. Even now, thousands of years since abductions began, Recruiters still acquire the best of Human space's warriors for the games.
The humans go on in their tiny light-years bubble of space attacking each others’ colony worlds, believing themselves the most advanced race in the universe while the rest of the galaxy watches their immortal ancestors fight and die in the Death Fields...Check out the existing range here!
